Hi, my friend needs to do a OS recovery on his Acer Aspire T120E, he has no disks or even a manual, does anybody know if there is a hidden partition holding XP and which keys to press to access it. Thanks for looking.

Acer Recovery Instructions

  1. Power on the machine
  2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10” key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery
  3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click “Restore to Factory Default Settings”
  4. Click “OK” to continue
  5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
  6. Once eRecovery has run, press “OK” to reboot unit

Hi Fruit Bat -

Do these instructions apply to ALL Acer Aspire laptops or only particular models?

I do have a recovery disc that it instructed me to create when I first got the laptop but your instructions are a useful alternative to know, if they apply to mine too.

Its a general Acer recover system not just for Aspires really depends if the particular machine came installed with eRecovery.

A lot do as Acer does not issue back up discs.
